[Email/WebMail] Using Windows Live Mail from non Charter locatio
Greetings: Are there any settings that would allow me to use Windows Live Mail (or Thunderbird, Outlook etc.) on my laptop from a non Charter connection? I won't go into detail on how slow and unpleasant Charter webmail is, I do have Gmail but would still like to use my Charter address some of the time.
I can receive messages without any problem, but sending, forwarding or making a new message never works. It seems the Charter mail server rejects it, I've pasted an example of the error message at the bottom of this post. I have gone through all the options I can think of- pop & imap, smtp and mobile.charter.net, ports 25/143 & 993/587, with and without SSL.
Has anyone been successful with this or is it something that Charter simply won't allow?
An unknown error was returned from the SMTP server.

"The mobile device settings can also be used on a laptop or netbook to send messages using a desktop Email client when not connected to a Charter internet connection."
Receiving mail is POP or IMAP. You authenticate to these services to 'get mail'.
You also need to authenticate to send mail (SMTP) w/ your complete email address.
Is port 587 open on the 'non-charter' network? Many places restrict

said by nightshade74:Restrictions on outgoing email are for port 25, because that allows spammers to use compromised computers to send directly to domain MX servers. Ports 465 and 587, as message submission ports, are useless to spammers without a customer login for server access.
